The Stroke of Midnight

I saw this "flyer" on tumblr and couldn't help but laugh. I've only spent one New Year's Eve inside a douchey night club (back in '06/'07). I swore then that it would be my last foray into the club scene. I have succeeded in my promise. New Year's Eve is an exciting time but I find that it's extremely overrated and can produce a tremendous amount of disappointment. One of my friends got married last year on 12/31, so it was an amazing night, but some of the best New Year's Eve parties I've been to were right at home with my family or close friends. I don't see what fun there is to be had in waiting an hour at a crowded bar to get an overpriced, watered down drink. I'd rather watch the ball drop from the comfort of my own home. I'm still waiting for my first new year's kiss, though. I ran away from the guy I was with last year because it wouldn't have been special enough. True story. I've waited this long, might as well hold out for the fireworks...

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
